Of Gorges & Giggling Ponies

OKAY, OKAY!
SlackerLulu finally gets it together to post again... (Was trying to figger out how to adjust the template so it would show Lulu's Links AND read ok on Safari... but StinkyLu's not that clever...& that, plus work & other obligations, has slightly disrupted diligence on StinkyLu's part.)

In the meantime, MrStinky took StinkyLu on a little Taos getaway jaunt over the weekend.
Really nice. Barely 30 hours away from home but so nice to get away. And so nice to play with that MrStinky. Stayed in MrStinky's favorite Taos B&B -- the Laughing Horse Inn -- which StinkyLu found delightfully challenging to remember. The Giggling Pony? The Snickering Camel? Give that StinkyLulu an inch...

But -- to be sure -- The Guffawing Giraffe was very nice & cozy, with a big walk-in shower, crunchy-organic signs all around & a stumpy BlackLab/Corgi-cross name Yolita. What's not to love? After a quiet morning of public radio & french spelt toast, somehow MrStinky got StinkyLu to go on a HIKE! 'Magine dat! All the way down into the Taos gorge where there were hot & cold springs right next to the rumbling water of the river. (Now, don't you be thinking StinkyLu got all nekkid & hopped into the hotsprings. The hike was a plenty big enough step outside StinkyLu's comfort zone for one morning.) Once StinkyLu got out of that dang gorge, the other project of the weekend -- angling for a Lynn Anderson sighting -- continued to no avail. Lucky thing StinkyLu had MrStinky & the hike to be totally thrilled with. Not to mention the Chortling Donkey.

Oh. StinkyLu & MrStinky also snagged a screening of Callas Forever at the Screen in Santa Fe on the way back from Taos. A surprisingly effective meditation on performance & authenticity. Really. At first StinkyLu was afeared the flick would turn out to be a an overstuffed sausage of goofiness, but the truthfulness at the center made it one of the most interesting films about performance StinkyLu's seen recently...
